The Overwatch League has revealed the new All-Stars skins for 2020, and they’re a nice little surprise for anyone who likes to play D.Va and Reinhardt.

New skins for the OWL All-Star Weekend are some of the most anticipated by fans since they’re usually some of the wildest cosmetics we see all year, and 2020 is definitely no disappointment.

In 2019, it was the support duo of Lucio and Mercy who got cosmetics representing the Pacific and Atlantic Divisions, respectively. In 2018, it was DPS heroes Genji and Tracer.

This year it’s finally the Tanks’ turn as Reinhardt and everyone’s favorite K-POP/esports star Hana ‘D.Va’ Song are the two lucky heroes that will get some awesome new skins.

To start off, just take a look at that Celestial D.Va skin. We haven’t seen a new one for her since Overwatch’s 2019 Anniversary event, but just seeing her All-Star selection makes it clear the design team took their sweet time with it.

Her MEKA seems to be carved out of marble, with blue underneath and some elegant gold inlays and accessories. While the mech now looks like it belongs in a museum, Song seems to have taken some hair tips from Ashe with a new platinum ‘do.

D.Va will now look right at home cruising around Ilios, while Reinhardt’s all-natural ‘Gaia’ skin seems like it just walked out of the Black Forest Deathmatch map. Rein is covered in wood and branches, along with neon green highlights, for a look that’s giving us some serious Night Elf vibes.

The 2020 Overwatch League All-Stars skins definitely do not disappoint.

Reinhardt’s hammer, which you can see in the trailer tweeted by OWL up above, looks like a giant branch with glowing green crystals growing out of the top. Definitely entertaining to pummel people with.

Don’t wait around to grab either skin because they’ll only be available from Sept. 28 to Oct. 12 2020. After that, they’ll be locked away in the Blizzard vault for good like all the other All-Stars skins, and you don’t want to get left out!

It will cost 200 OWL Tokens to unlock each skin, so 400 in total if you want to get both. If you need more tokens you can still earn some for absolutely free just by watching matches while the Playoffs, Grand Finals, and All-Star matches are live.

During the spookiest time of the year, Overwatch’s fans have discovered a cute, quaint easter egg in the game’s Chateau Guillard map, which has enjoyed a Halloween makeover.

Overwatch’s developers over at Blizzard do not take October’s biggest holiday for granted, as they celebrate the costume and candy festivities each year with reworked maps and new cosmetics.

This year, players have taken to exploring the Halloween version of Chateau Guillard, and are appreciating the various adjustments.

Now set under moonlight, the extensive French chateau most popularly known for deathmatch custom games is also becoming known for spooky Halloween details. Having released in 2018’s event, players are still making discoveries in the version of Chateau Guillard at night.

Normally, people get distracted by the fog and darkness, or maybe the jack-o’-lanterns and subterranean coffin.

But, taking a trip to the red study room, Redditor ‘YHJ_JYG_Kryptlock’ has discovered a neat little Overwatch easter egg involving candle wicks.

The new Halloween easter egg appears in Chateau Guillard’s red study room.

As they demonstrate in the clip below, if you shoot each wick of the candelabra, the candles will briefly light. It’s nothing crazy, but that doesn’t stop it from being a neat addition to an already detailed revamped map.

To find this easter egg, you’ll first need to find the red study room.

If you’re facing inward to the chateau from the outdoor area with a jump pad and statue, this room will be toward the back right as you enter. If you’re on the opposite end, at the balcony’s health pack, this will be to your left as you enter the chateau.

How to find Chateau Guillard’s Halloween easter egg

  1. Head to the red study room
  2. Locate the standing candelabra, in the back right of the room at the corner near the bookshelf
  3. Shoot the candle wicks
  4. Enjoy the lit candles
  5. Make a wish?

If you shoot the candles wicks in Château Guillard (Halloween) you will light them on fire. from Overwatch

Ultimately, it’s a very simple easter egg, but a cute one. In a map covered in so much dreary darkness thanks to Halloween, lighting candles is a nice contrast.

Of course, it also makes for a decent party trick. So if you load into custom games, feel free to impress your friends by showing off your detailed map knowledge.
